THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF TRUCKEE MEADOWS

THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF TRUCKEE MEADOWS

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows is all about creating a place where every kid feels safe and connected: a place to belong and a place to become. This is that place for over 13,000 youth in 30+ locations across northern Nevada. From the transportation program offering bus rides from local schools to the Club, to their food program serving over 400,000 meals every year, the Boys and Girls Club strives to provide special, structured programming centered on its core values.

NORTHERN NEVADA HOPES

Since 1997, Northern Nevada HOPES has been on the front lines of community health, caring for those with the fewest resources and options, many of whom are living in crisis everyday. From its early days as a single-room HIV/AIDS clinic to the 38,000-square-foot community health center they are in today, HOPES continues to serve Northern Nevada’s vulnerable, overlooked, and underserved. They tackle our community’s hard problems with resolve and compassion.

SOULFUL SEEDS

Soulful Seeds is changing the way we improve food justice in the community. They operate community gardens in the middle of vulnerable communities to teach gardening and distribute food. In less than two years, Soulful Seeds has reached a milestone in reaching an Agreement with Washoe County to provide a 2-Acre farm on the "Our Place" campus for homeless, women, children, and families.  If it wasn't for the community, this would never have been possible.
